In Sicily, Cardi, a Mafia leader of unknown identity, sends warnings to Countess Margherita ( Betty Blythe ) that she must not marry Count Martinello ( Effingham Pinto ). While on his way to the wedding Martinello is murdered by Cardi's band, and Norvin Blake ( Robert Elliott ), a young American, makes his way to the countess and breaks the news, she now swears to avenge the death of her beloved. Several years later, in New Orleans, Margherita, posing as a nurse, meets Blake, and he declares his love for her. Recognizing Gian Norcone ( Walter James ), as the leader of the band that killed Martinello, Blake has him arrested after engaging him in a hand-to-hand fight. Maruffi, a suitor for the hand of Margherita, is discovered to be Cardi. The Italian-Sicilian colony is aroused against him, and during a fight between Blake and Cardi, the latter is stabbed by Margherita's maid; and Blake happily wins Margherita.
This 1922 drama starring Betty Blythe and Robert Elliott is now tragically a lost silent film.
